Champions Manchester City smash Premier League records

"We are really looking forward to seeing him develop at City over the coming years".

The champions ran their rivals out of town and rode away with the league this year, becoming the first team in Premier League history to reach 100 points.

18 - Beginning with a 2-1 win at Bournemouth on August 26 and concluded by 1-0 triumph at Newcastle on December 27, City set a Premier League best of 18 consecutive victories.

The victorious squad and manager Pep Guardiola were driven through the streets in an open-top bus to celebrate a historic season filled with record-breaking achievements.

"Numbers are numbers, they are the outcome of the way we played".

Elsewhere, Swansea's expected relegation was confirmed - as they lost at home to Stoke.

Take a look and let us know which other moments deserve a mention. All respect to Swansea, but it is nearly impossible. "We didn't play ideal for 38 games, but most of the time, we were so good", Guardiola added.

Guardiola introduced youngsters Brahim Diaz and Phil Foden late on, ensuring both players have registered five appearances to earn a Premier League medal - with Foden becoming the youngest ever victor at 17 years and 350 days old.

Ederson is expected to be in Brazil's squad for the World Cup starting next month.

City switched to a back three as they went in search of a victor, leaving Dusan Tadic space on the left flank, who produced a delightful cross for substitute James Ward-Prowse, leaving the youngster's header to be kept out by a diving Bravo. "It shows how stable and how good we were all the season". First Sterling saw his deflected shot come back off the post, before McCarthy did well to back pedal and tip a John Stones header over the bar from the resulting corner.

"Some days I will be here because the kids are in school, some days I'll be in Manchester with (director of football) Txiki (Begiristain) or (chief executive) Ferran (Soriano)".

"We ended up losing a game I thought we possibly should have won but the bigger picture, clearly, was to make sure we got the job done". I think it's a record that will stay for a long time.
